Expectations management for IBeacons Projects - Part 1

Indoor positioning using Bluetooth Low Energy Components is a technology and trend of extreme high interest these days and IBeacons is the Apple trademark and solution enabling to easily implement indoors proximity detection Applications within IOS applications.

In this paper, the aim is not to provide (again) technical details about IBeacons as such since this is a subject that is largely covered, on a daily basis, on the internet by quite a number of excellent tutorials and articles but rather to focus on some underlying aspects that typically arise after the euphoric first phase of seeing a running IBeacons detection on a developer device (this takes roughly 20 minutes) or after a showcase demonstration event.More...
